Cristofori's Dream Review

by William Ruhlmann

David Lanz's Cristofori's Dream is among the most popular new age recordings ever made. This is an album of instrumental piano music (with other instruments, especially strings and string-like synthesizers, added). Its selections have a calm elegance, as Lanz spends most of his time in the upper register of the piano delivering precise, articulated melodies, culminating in a re-creation of Procol Harum's "A Whiter Shade of Pale" that features original organist Matthew Fisher.
